What Can I Expect With Dental Crown Treatment?

Dental treatment can be a little scary, but if you know what to expect when you head to your appointment, your nerves will wash away. So, to help you be prepared for your upcoming dental crown treatment, our [practice_name] team is happy to tell you what to expect when you come into our office.

During your appointment, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1: Dr. [doctor_name] will first examine your tooth and smile by taking a series of dental X-rays. The X-rays will help your dentist determine the health and condition of your tooth’s roots and the bone surrounding the tooth.

Step 2: When you are ready, your dentist will numb your tooth and surrounding gums with a local anesthetic. This will help you have a positive and painless dental experience. Once your mouth is numb, your dentist will remove a portion of your tooth to make room for the dental crown.

Step 3: Once your tooth is the correct size, your dentist will make an impression of the tooth and will send that impression to the dental lab where your new crown will be created. While you wait, you will be given a temporary crown.

Step 4: You will come back into our office once your new crown is ready. While you are here, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and will cement the new crown into place.
